HUNT VALLEY, Md.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Apr. 14, 2016-- TESSCO Technologies Inc., the leading U.S. provider of product solutions required to build, use, and maintain towers, wireless communications, utilities, mining, oil & gas, renewable energy systems and transportation, has signed a distribution agreement with Sentera, LLC, a global provider of software, sensor, and drone technologies to the infrastructure inspection industry. The agreement gives TESSCO’s customers access to Sentera’s innovative infrastructure solutions, including the OnTop™ Platform, precision sensors, and fixed-wing and quadcopter inspection drones.

“We are pleased to add Sentera’s drone inspection solution, including drones, precision sensors and imagery management software, to TESSCO’s extensive customer network,” said Doug Dollenberg, Vice President for TESSCO. “By seamlessly managing drone and sensor data, then making it shareable and searchable, the OnTop Platform will help increase operational efficiencies when conducting tower inspections in the cellular, utility, gas, and oil industries.”

The OnTop Platform works seamlessly with any inspection drone or sensor and lets users annotate and tag imagery, then instantly share the vital photos with teams and organizations, enabling tower owners, builders, climbers, and service providers to build a network of data points and unlock the data contained within inspection imagery. All imagery is saved to a secure, 256-bit AES + SSL encrypted cloud server, and, once uploaded, is available instantly anywhere in the world.

“This agreement provides Sentera with a broader and deeper reach to deliver world-class products to customers,” said Greg Emerick, Executive Vice President of Business Development for Sentera. “To stay competitive the infrastructure inspection industry continually looks for forward-thinking solutions to help increase operational efficiencies, ROI, and employee safety.
